PokerStars Sunday tournament results 1-25-09
The last Sunday of any month makes for a busy day at PokerStars. This weekend was even busier. Not only did we have two new Team PokerStars Pro members, but we also saw the monthly Battle of the Planets Triple showdown, and its winner ISANI.
Top honors in this week's Sunday Million go to jnic00. Exactly 8,500 people signed up for this week's $1.5 million event. After a three-way chop, the top three players made more than six figures. For first place, jnic00 won $178,788. For full coverage on the final table, check out the 1-25-08 Sunday Million report.
More than 4,300 people took to the Sunday Warm-Up event. Once designed to be friend to folks in European time zones, the Warm-Up has become appointment poker for the online tournament crowd. This week, SnookerFun did something few people have done. In fact, to our knowledge, it may not have ever happened before. SnookerFun won the Sunday Warm-Up for the second time in three months. After dispatching his head-up opponent in one hand, SnookerFun pocketed more than $112,000.
Finally, as it was the final Sunday in January, PokerStars ran its 5000-FPP buy-in Turbo Takedown. Ship the $100,000 first prize to vballbobbi.
